Stucco, a versatile finishing plaster, lends a smooth, sleek look. Furthermore, it can be painted to best suit the feel of the house.
Whether you prefer modern or traditional style, stucco is a gorgeous option, for both interiors and exteriors.
Highly valued for its versatility and affordability, stucco also offers durability and adds beauty and a variety of attention-grabbing textures.
With plenty of ways to change its color and texture, this cement-based material can definitely lend a unique look to any space.
Plus, it offers effective insulation!
However, note that stucco is not a suitable option for very damp locations. Also, as it is a relatively brittle material, it is not advisable to use stucco for older houses with foundation shifting issues.
